Dryer Vent Cleaning
On a rainy day, the first thing you want and need is for your dryer to work efficiently. Cleaning your dryer vents not only helps maintain the machine but helps it work more efficiently, and extends the life of the machine. Did you know that almost half of the lint produced in clothes drying escapes past the filter and gets trapped in the exhaust vent pipe? If the vent is clogged, your dryer can do its job properly, causing your clothes not to dry as quickly as they normally would. This can double your energy costs for the dryer or even more. If the vent becomes extremely clogged, it can become a fire hazard. If the hot air does not have an escape route, the dryer will become excessively hot, which could result in a fire. Your dryer vent hose and pipe should be cleaned annually to maintain efficiency and prevent fire risks. Contact us immediately if:
Your clothes are too hot to touch after drying.

Your dryer shuts itself off unexpectedly. With the purchase of any duct cleaning service, Johnson Brothers Hvac uses a special air snake to clean dryer vents. It loosens lint, debris, and dirt, which are then removed by our powerful van-mounted vacuum. In addition to the air snake, we also clean all areas inside the dryer that collect lint.
